Why Join Rotary?


Rotary volunteers are people of action, men and women of all ages, backgrounds and work experience, united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace. With more than 1.2 million men and women in over 200 countries and geographical areas belong to over 34,000 Rotary Clubs, the potential for clubs to leverage their contribution is enormous.

Rotary builds international understanding through scholarships, exchange programmes and humanitarian grants. PolioPlus is Rotary's flagship programme. By the time polio is eradicated, which we believe could be very soon, Rotary Club members worldwide will have raised nearly £1 billion and contributed countless volunteer hours to immunise more than 2 billion children in 122 countries. The project began in a local Rotary Club in the Philippines, and Rotary International was the spearheading partner in the Global Polio Education Initiative, along with the World Health Organisation, UNICEF, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and, more recently, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

See our 'International' page in the side bar to discover how we work with a range of International projects.

Just as important, the Rotary Club of Evesham prides itself on finding ways to make a difference in our local community. For example, we run the Tree of Light campaign each Christmas to raise money in support of local charities. Click on any of the pages in the sidebar to find out more about what we do. If you would like to help us, then why not make contact? We are always open to new ideas of how we can make a difference for our communities in Evesham and The Vale .

We would love to hear from you!
